dark mode

Just a Gwai Lo Supports Dark Mode

I have to say, I was skeptical about dark mode in our current operating systems, but since wiring it up to switch to it automatically after sunset, I’m a believer. I know some people always operate their in dark mode, and that's not for me. I prefer the light on my screen to match the light of the day. It's especially nice to have my iPhone in dark mode at concerts, so I can avoid being "that guy" who blinds the person behind me,

Websites now respect the system setting of dark mode, and ever since Jeff Geerling updated his site's theme to support dark mode, I had on my list to do the same.

It turns out that the Responsive Blog Drupal theme, a very nice theme that does what it says on the tin, has a switch for turning on the dark mode version of it. I'm glad I realized that most of the work had been done for me, and I've submitted a patch to the project for review.

The last frontier of dark mode based on system setting is third-party JavaScript widgets. None of the 3 widgets on my blog, to my knowledge, have the ability to switch automatically.
